Dangerous Mountaintop Restaurant
A dangerous journey is required to reach this remote restaurant on top of Mt. Huashan in Anhui Province China
Mt. Huashan, also called "the Great West Mountain," is one of China's five sacred mountains. A series of service facilities were established both on the top and at the foot of this dangerous mountain, including the Huashan Hotel, the Jinrong hotel, the Li Hua Ping Hotel and the Beifeng Restaurant.
Chinese began to test their mettle and visit in the 1980s. The inherent danger of many of the exposed, narrow pathways with precipitous drops gave the mountain a deserved reputation for danger. Tourism has boomed and the mountain's accessibility vastly improved with the installation of the cable car in the 1990s. Despite the safety measures introduced by cutting deeper pathways and building up stone steps and wider paths, as well as adding railings, fatalities continue to occur.
